Onshore wind turbines and solar plants produce green hydrogen on an industrial scale


Lhyfe and ENERPARC AG enable sustainable, climate-friendly and local production of green hydrogen.

The collaboration is intended to show new ways of achieving climate neutrality, especially at the municipal level. Green hydrogen is expected to be in use as early as 2023.

Lhyfe, producer and supplier of green hydrogen, is building and operating an electrolyzer in Luckau Brandenburg. To produce the green hydrogen, the company is cooperating with Hamburg-based ENERPARC AG. For this purpose, ENERPARC and Lhyfe are coupling the electrolyzer with a 20 MW photovoltaic plant of the solar power specialist. The electrolyzer with an output of 5 MW thus enables the production of up to 1,200 kg of green hydrogen daily. The climate-friendly energy carrier will be used in industrial processes and transport applications in the region. The first green hydrogen is to be produced at the end of 2023.

The development and implementation of customized and individual solutions unites the two companies. The joint project is intended to serve industry, transport companies, filling stations and municipalities as a suitable example of how a climate-neutral and local energy supply can already be designed today. Lhyfe and ENERPARC are market leaders in their respective industries.

“For the competitive production of green hydrogen, low-cost electricity supply is crucial. Therefore, direct power supply of locally produced solar power for electrolysis is particularly targeted. This project thus creates a very valuable partnership that further expands the philosophy of both companies: a sustainable ecological and at the same time economical transformation of the energy sector,” says Armin Scherl, Team Leader Systems Engineering at ENERPARC AG.

Whether the transformation of industry and the transport sector to climate neutrality is successful depends to a large extent on green hydrogen. Establishing decentralized hydrogen production sites at an early stage and making them available to local customers is a key factor in supporting this transformation.

Luc Graré, Head of International Business at Lhyfe, comments: “The targeted establishment of local hydrogen ecosystems is a decisive milestone for the climate neutrality of numerous municipalities. Climate protection starts at the local and regional level. Strategic partnerships like the one with ENERPARC are important in order to be able to set up precisely these projects across the board. In France and Denmark, we are already involved in a large number of projects. Now we are setting up broadly in Germany as well.”

Just recently, Lhyfe’s team ceremoniously opened the world’s first hydrogen production plant that produces green hydrogen on an industrial scale by directly coupling it to onshore wind turbines. In Tübingen, Lhyfe is involved in Deutsche Bahn’s H2goesRail project. The establishment of decentralized supply points is intended to serve in the long term to reduce emerging import dependencies of the European Union.
